Join pianist Aaron Rimbui and Swing U curator Seton Hawkins as they guide you through the styles of two of West Africa’s greatest musical minds: Cameroonian saxophonist Manu Dibango and Congolese vocalist and guitarist Franco. Over six weeks we’ll explore each of these remarkable musicians and place their artistic accomplishments in the context and history of African popular music.
